Is CICA Comedogenic?

2 Mins read

Cica cream is a popular skincare product to treat pimples and breakouts. It is also known as ‘zit cream’ or ‘pimple cream’.

It contains an active ingredient called benzoyl peroxide that works by killing the bacteria that cause acne and other skin problems like blackheads, whiteheads, etc.

Since it has this active ingredient, it can be comedogenic (cause clogged pores).

However, not all Cica creams are comedogenic so you need to choose wisely before using any product with this active ingredient for the face.

Is Cica Comedogenic?

Cica is comedogenic and should not be used on acne-prone skin.

The ingredient will clog your pores and cause breakouts, so it’s best to avoid this product if you’re oily or prone to acne outbreaks.

That being said, if you’re looking for a natural alternative to chemical-based medications like Accutane or Retin-A (which can have serious side effects), cica may be an option worth considering.

While not all skin types are compatible with the ingredient, if your skin isn’t particularly sensitive and has been treated by a dermatologist with non-comedogenic products in the past without any issues, cica could work well for your needs—especially considering its high concentration of powerful antioxidants that help heal damaged cells faster than conventional treatments do!

Can Cica Break You Out?

Cica can cause breakouts for some people.

If you are prone to breakouts, it is important to know your skin type before using Cica.

If you have been using a product like Cica for a while and your skin is still breaking out, try switching to an oil-free moisturizer or see a dermatologist.

If you are seeking the benefits of Cica but worried about its comedogenic rating, try getting a sample size first and testing it out on your own skin before buying the full size product.

Can You Use Cica Cream Everyday?

You should only use CicaCare® Cream as needed to treat your skin condition.

Use it no more than 3 times a week, or every other day.

Wash your face with a gentle cleanser before bedtime, and then apply the cream on any areas of the skin where there are dry patches or rashes.

After using CicaCare®, moisturize with one of our moisturizers for normal or oily skin.

You can also use a gentle toner (like our exfoliating toner) after washing your face in order to help remove dirt and excess oil from pores that may be clogged due to acne breakouts.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, it looks like CICA is comedogenic.

However, due to the fact that there are no studies on this topic yet, we cannot say for sure whether or not this ingredient causes pimples on your face.
